Go to Tools - VSdocman menu or press VSdocman button on standard toolbar. VSdocman dialog appears, select Project Properties pane. Set Output - General page.

Documentation Title

A title of your documentation. It is used in help window title, TOC, topic headers, etc.

Output Folder

Specifies the output folder where generated file(s) are to be stored. Note, when you generate CHM documentation, don't use the output path with whitespaces! It's because command line compiler hhc.exe cannot compile CHM file to folder with whitespaces and it returns an error.

You can use path macros such as $(ProjectDir), $(SolutionDir) and $(VSdocmanDir). For example you can define output folder as $(ProjectDir)..\..\VSdoc. This is useful when sharing .vsdoc project properties in a source control system.

Delete all files in output folder before compilation

If selected, all existing files and subdirectories in the output folder will be deleted prior to the compilation of new documentation.

External Files Folder

Specifies folder where your external files are located. Leave blank if you don't use any external files.

You can use path macros such as $(ProjectDir), $(SolutionDir) and $(VSdocmanDir). This is useful when sharing .vsdoc project properties in source control system.
